a different position than the administration does. i want to see energy resources developed in this country. to me this is an absolute no brainer. i know the environmental community wants to stop this because they he want to stop using oil and petrochemicals. the fact is not doing this pipeline is not going to affect that at all. this material, this oil is going to go to china if we don't put it into a pipeline and bring it in to america and tuesday to create jobs here in america and lower the cost of energy here in the united states. >> shannon: and the president walking a bit of a tight rope calls from environmentalists but calls from union members who want to see the pipeline approved. how do you think he will find that delicate balance and make a decision? >> it is hard to say except if you look at what he did last time he had to make the call sided not with the unions but with the environmentalists and i think he is wrong on that. the unions are absolutely right. this is job creation, pure unanswered questions adulterated job creation that will really help america's use of its natural

in my power, soummon every energy and all of my focus to build on her record and on the president's vision. senator mccain, as he mentioned, is a longtime friend. we met here in the senate coming from very different political positions and perspectives, but you know, we found common ground. i will never forget standing with him in hanoi, in the cell, in the hanoi hilton in which he spent a number of years of his life, just the two of us, listening to him talk about that experience. i will always be grateful for his partnership and helping to make real peace with vietnam. by establishing the most significant process in the history of our country, or of any country, for the accounting of missing and dead in any war. and then for working to lift the embargo and ultimately normalize relations with an old enemy. john had every reason to hate, but he didn't. and instead, we were able to help heal deep wounds and end a war that had divided too many people for much too long. and as we talk about war and peace and foreign policy, i want all of us to keep in our minds as i think we do, the
